Hi, I am a 38 yr old female. I have had 3 chldren, a hysterectomy and gall bladder surgery.

My problems began about 15 yrs ago. I began to just feel bad....aches, fever ect... It has progressed over the years to the following symptoms:

muscle pain
bone and joint pain
fever...all low grade
face turns very red around cheek area when I am at my worst
gastero trouble
dry skin
dry hair
brittle nails
severe back pain
joints dislocate on their own in ankles and jaw and sometimes shoulder
can only turn neck on one side
pain and numbness in fingers
trouble getting up from chairs
rapid weight gain
slow healing sores
skin rashes
swelling in fingers and elbows

I am sure there are some I forgot but you get the idea....I have been to many docs, I have hashimotos, fibro and some form of arthritis....

I have been tested for lupus, ra and ms and told it doesnt fit...I do have an abromally high ana test

Tylenol, advil , aleve ect...all stopped working as did vicodin.

I am fastly getting worse in the last few months to the point I trip over things because my legs don't want to work, or drop things because I have no grop sometimes. I need help...any ideas appreciated
